APOLLO 11 HEROES
2008 Mint Commemorative Sheet of 6
"Neil Armstrong was among the greatest of American heroes - not just of his time, but of all time." President Barack Obama
The culmination of a space race inspired by President Kennedy, the 1969 Moon Landing was one of mankind's greatest achievements. On July 20, 1969 millions around the world were glued to their television sets as they watched live pictures of Commander Neil Armstrong become the first person to step foot on another world with the immortal words "that's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind". The island nation of Tuvalu pays tribute to this momentous event and humble hero Armstrong, along with fellow crew members Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and Michael Collins on this attractive commemorative sheet.
